When do seconds become sheep, And sheep take me to that place The ticking clock can't get me? No fences here, just a face. Yeah, I see you. A real slick face. And those hands! Twisted, always Turning but never to embrace me, Just to drag me on. "Time always tells!" They say, but tells what? How worthless I am, how I can't Get anything right, how I can't Make this stick, how I can't Be myself, or how I can't Exhale, or how I can't Cry, or how I can't How I can't -- Fall asleep. Silence makes you more profound. It should be commended -- so much Expression in that one sound. Gears turning in my head, and yours! Tick. Tock. Just to drag me on. Mindless clicking, I'll lay here 'till I realize what? How worthless I am? Yes, it hurts To think I'll always fail, it hurts When I'm alone, and it hurts Even with friends, it hurts As I breathe in, it hurts To smile,and it hurts Oh, how it hurts To fall asleep.
